NFL 2015 Mock Draft Round 1
Selections 1-16

Drafttek.com uses a computer model to simulate a 7-round 2015 NFL Mock Draft. Each team has an analyst who supplies data on 2015 NFL Draft team needs. The team needs are matched up against a list of 2015 NFL Draft prospect rankings (aka "Big Board") in order to generate each selection in our 2015 NFL Mock Draft.





September 4, 2014 - 2015 Mock Draft: 1 Round

If you haven't been paying attention, three teams finished the pre-season with unbeaten records and hope to carry that success on into the regular season. The Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings all fared disappointingly in 2013, but fans are hoping that their undefeated pre-seasons will leads to an improvement in the W column when bullets are live. Check below for our 2015 NFL mock draft projection heading into the 2014 regular season.



1 Oakland
Leonard Williams
    USC
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
290
Alternate Pick #1
Cedric Ogbuehi
Alternate Pick #2
Brandon Scherff
While Raider Nation can hope that the Tuck-Woodley combo will provide more pressure from the outside than the anemic output of a year ago, there is no hope that the aging duo is any sort of long-term solution. The immensely talented Williams has made an impact from the moment he arrived in Southern California and would bring a complete set of skills to the Silver & Black.
2 Jacksonville
Vic Beasley
    Clemson
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
235
Alternate Pick #1
Dante Fowler Jr
Alternate Pick #2
Michael Bennett
Albeit still in year 2 of the rebuild, the trio of Shad Khan, Dave Caldwell, and Gus Bradley have sparked a level of excitement that hasn't been seen in Jag Land in over a decade. However, the product on the field is still away from being able to compete consistently. Caldwell has placed an emphasis on speed and rush ability at the LB position and Clemson LB Vic Beasley is adept at both.
3 Tennessee
Marcus Mariota
    Oregon
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Dante Fowler Jr
Alternate Pick #2
Jameis Winston
If Tennessee is picking this high, Jake Locker either was injured, or underperformed. Either way, he is in the last year of his contract, and the Titans will let him walk and move forward with "their guy." Insert: Marcus Mariota. He has a solid build, a strong arm, and can create plays with his feet, but needs to work on his mechanics, something correctable with an NFL coaching staff.
4 Cleveland
Brandon Scherff
    Iowa
    ROT
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
315
Alternate Pick #1
Dante Fowler Jr
Alternate Pick #2
Devin Funchess
It's tempting to elevate the need for a WR to DEFCON-2 after the release of Nate Burleson and the suspension of Josh Gordon. We'll have to see how the Browns' young receiver corps shakes out before sounding the alarm. For now, the Hawkeye road grader is our BPA choice, and for good reason: That right side of the O-Line remains unsettled.
5 Minnesota
Landon Collins
    Alabama
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -6
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
215
Alternate Pick #1
Landon Collins
Alternate Pick #2
Landon Collins
Veterans Kurt Coleman and Chris Crocker were both released in favor of Robert Blanton and Special Teams beast Andrew Sendejo. Blanton, a former 5th-Round Pick, was the favorite to earn the starting job at Strong Safety since the start of Training Camp; however, neither player has really emerged to take hold of the job. If SS is a major hole in the Vikings' D again, Landon Collins is a strong target to fill it.
6 Cleveland
Dante Fowler Jr
    Florida
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
261
Alternate Pick #1
P.J. Williams
Alternate Pick #2
Amari Cooper
It is our fervent prayer that the Browns won't need to draft a QB in 2015. That said, the Browns can bolster the front-7 by snatching Fowler here, unless the need for a Safety or a Wide Receiver trumps BPA. The other plausible scenario would see a trade for more draft picks.
7 Dallas
Jameis Winston
    Florida St
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
228
Alternate Pick #1
Cedric Ogbuehi
Alternate Pick #2
Michael Bennett
After lamenting the decision not to draft Johnny Football, do you really think Jason Garrett and Stephen Jones can rip the card out of Cuzzin Jerruh's hand if Winston is available? Yes, they could upgrade practically every position on defense but if Jerruh is drafting in the Top Ten, he will make a splash!
8 NY Giants
Cedric Ogbuehi
    Texas A&M
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
300
Alternate Pick #1
Cameron Erving
Alternate Pick #2
Brett Hundley
The two primary questions for the Giants are the health and effeciveness of LT Will Beatty and their tight ends. If the Giants are drafting 8th, Will Beatty needs to be replaced. The Giants won't pass blue chip prospect Cedric Ogbuehi (4th overall) who fills a position of need and continues the tradition of high Giants draft picks with difficult names to spell (Kiwanuka, Amukamara, Umeinyora).



9 Pittsburgh
P.J. Williams
    Florida St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -6
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
190
Alternate Pick #1
Cameron Erving
Alternate Pick #2
Andrus Peat
The Steelers have no outside corners under contract next year and are lucky to have their choice of prospects in this mock. Williams has entered his second year as a starter and looks to solidify his stock as a top flight corner. Last year he showed some elite coverage skills, breaking up seven passes and intercepting three.
10 Houston
Cameron Erving
    Florida St
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
304
Alternate Pick #1
Brett Hundley
Alternate Pick #2
Amari Cooper
New HC O'Brien just traded for Ryan Mallet from the Patriots . . . he may or may not be their franchise QB, but he's tall, long-legged, and slow so additional beef on the OL is definitely on the agenda. Erving may be the most talented athlete among this year's class of Big Uglies and is excellent value for the Texans at #10.
11 NY Jets
Andrus Peat
    Stanford
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
312
Alternate Pick #1
Benardrick McKinney
Alternate Pick #2
Randy Gregory
Jets' LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson's mediocre play appears to have continued into this preseason, giving up 5 pressures on only 52 passing snaps, according to PFF. The Jets used the first round of the draft to rebuild their stout D-Line so maybe the time is right for them to implement the same plan for their O-Line. Taking someone like Andrus Peat at the LT spot here at 11 would be a good start.
12 Washington
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
    Oregon
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
185
Alternate Pick #1
Benardrick McKinney
Alternate Pick #2
Carl Davis
The Redskins will almost assuredly draft the top defensive-back on the board. Though undersized, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is an impressive cover corner, blanketing the unstoppably-quick Brandin Cooks in 2013. Adding Ekpre-Olomu to the promising starter David Amerson and an emerging Bashaud Breeland will transition the secondary nicely from over-the-hill to young and full of potential.
13 St Louis
Amari Cooper
    Alabama
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
205
Alternate Pick #1
Devin Funchess
Alternate Pick #2
Nelson Agholor
The Rams are hoping Kenny Britt and Brian Quick emerge as big-play threats following their fine preseason play. The Rams' receiving corps is filled with potential. Will that potential translate into results on the field? Amari Cooper will draw comparisons to 2014 first-round selection Sammy Watkins. Cooper enters this season as the top draft-eligible WR in the country. ~Frank Dobozy, Rams Analyst
14 Tampa Bay
Michael Bennett
    Ohio St
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
288
Alternate Pick #1
Carl Davis
Alternate Pick #2
Alvin Dupree
Perhaps the most pressing matter on GM Jason Licht's slate these days is extending the contract of DT Gerald McCoy. If they can't sign McCoy, the selection of a DT seems a slam dunk in the 2015 draft. Even if McCoy is re-upped, the selection of Bennett (or some other high-end DT) makes sense from a depth standpoint.
15 Miami
Benardrick McKinney
    Mississippi St
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Todd Gurley
Alternate Pick #2
Devin Funchess
Miami continues to try and find a worthwhile replacement inside. Following the departure of Zach Thomas, Miami has utilized Crowder, Ayodele, Dansby, Dobbins, Burnett, and Ellerbe at the ILB position. Aside from Dansby's three campaigns, the MLBs have been bad. McKinney is a monster (6-5, 245) but is still quick. He was the statistical leader of the Miss. St. defense as a RS Soph. last season.
16 Carolina
Todd Gurley
    Georgia
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
232
Alternate Pick #1
Nelson Agholor
Alternate Pick #2
La'el Collins
The Panthers throw need out the window and grab the next big thing in Todd Gurley. This Tarboro, NC native and Heisman hopeful has averaged 6.1 yards per carry in his first two seasons at UGA. The "Big Three" of Newton, Benjamin and Gurley would be fun to watch for years to come. ~Erin Ford, Panthers Analyst (@PanthersDrafter)
